My kids are reaching the point that I cannot put food on the table fast enough for them. Someone is always in some kind of growth spurt and wants food 24/7.
And nothing makes a perfect snack like just about anything on a Ritz® cracker.
I’ve really been working hard to come up with some kid friendly recipes that they can help cook and these 5 ideas were the perfect healthy snacks kids can make.
Healthy Snacks Kids Can Make
Before school one morning the two littlest kids and I headed to Walmart. We picked out our favorite toppings…as well as a few new ones that sounded like they would make the perfect healthy snack and a box of our favorite kind of Ritz crackers.
Then that night we had a smorgasbord of snacks as dinner to try to decide which were our favorites…they loved it.
Peanut Butter & Jelly
This first one started with putting a swipe of peanut butter on our cracker and then a little squeeze of jelly. This was actually pretty good and definitely one we’ll try again.
Turkey, Cheese & Spinach
Next up I took a slice of turkey deli meat, a slice of cheese and used a little round cookie cutter to cut circles out of each of these. I had the kids put one piece of each on top of their cracker and then a piece of baby spinach on top (yes, my kids really eat raw spinach). This was really good, although next time I might buy a little thicker slices of turkey…they were hard to cut out.
Pepperoni & Cheese
For our third snack we cut some more cheese circles and then took slices of turkey pepperoni and put them on top. I think this was one of their top favorites…mine too because it was super easy with no mess!
Salmon, Cream Cheese & Capers
I know, I know…this one is a little stretch for most kids, but my 7 year old really likes fish. We spread cream cheese on a cracker. I had gotten some smoked salmon and once again we used the small cookie cutter on it. Then I topped it with a couple of capers (I LOVE capers!). The two littlest kids wouldn’t try it, but it was my absolute favorite! I think I had this for lunch for three more days!
This one was hands down the favorite of all of us. We found some strawberry cream cheese fruit dip which makes this amazing! The berries are perfect right now so I cut up some strawberries and we topped it with a blueberry. You could seriously eat 10 of these in one sitting!
On Easter we got a chance to visit the Ritz® Truck when it was in town. The kids had fun trying all of the different snack ideas they had.
I hope this gave you some ideas for healthy snacks kids can make. Just let them loose in the store and let them pick their favorite toppings!
What’s your favorite snack?
